"Happy days are here again...the skies above are clear again!" You could almost hear that refrain this week above the roar of boat engines as they sped to the many walleye fishing hotspots. Clearing water conditions made for improved fishing both for trollers and drift fishermen. In the past few days, some good catches were made around the reef complex north of the Davis-Besse power plant and in several locations at Kelleys Island, including the southeast corner, Kelleys and Gull shoals and Middle Island  where big walleyes are being taken. Perch are available around Niagara Reef, off Ballast Island and east of Kelleys.
